Herberton to come alive with classical music

THE works of classical music will serenade the Herberton Shire Hall on Friday night, with local violinist Khalida De Ridder and classical guitarist Simon Thielke taking centre stage to perform new work by living Danish composer Martin Lohse and the much-loved Arpeggione Sonata by Franz Schubert.

Ms De Ridder has recently returned from her performances at the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne Recital Centre to perform on home soil for the one night event “Between”. 

The night, hosted by the Atherton Tablelands Chamber Music Festival, will see many classical music fans from the across the region come together. 

Ms De Ridder has been a musician from a very young age, learning through the School of the Air and travelling to orchestral programs across the state. 

She is excited to be back in the warm sunshine of the Tablelands alongside her friend Mr Thiekle to perform for the community. 

“To me there is nothing that beats the warmth and enthusiasm of regional Queensland audiences bring and also the diversity of having avid classical music lovers to those attending their first classical gig,” she said.

“Simon and I have played countless times over the past years in Atherton, Innisfail, Cairns and Townsville and we are both thrilled to be performing in the wonderful community of Herberton. 

The concert will be held on 24 June at 7pm.
